HP Fortran for OpenVMS
nameIs the name of the module.
rename-listIs one or more items having the following form:
- local-name => mod-name
local-nameIs the name of the entity in the program unit using the module.
mod-nameIs the name of a public entity in the module.
only-listIs the name of a public entity in the module or a generic identifier (a generic name, defined operator, or defined assignment).
An entity in the only-list can also take the form:
- [local-name =>] mod-name
If the USE statement is specified without the ONLY option, the program unit has access to all public entities in the named module.
If the USE statement is specified with the ONLY option, the program unit has access to only those entities following the option.
If two or more generic interfaces that are accessible in a scoping unit have the same name, the same operator, or are both assignments, they are interpreted as a single generic interface. Otherwise, multiple accessible entities can have the same name only if no reference to the name is made in the scoping unit.
The local names of entities made accessible by a USE statement must not be respecified with any attribute other than PUBLIC or PRIVATE. The local names can appear in namelist group lists, but not in a COMMON or EQUIVALENCE statement.
The following shows examples of the USE statement:
MODULE MOD_A INTEGER :: B, C REAL E(25,5), D(100) END MODULE MOD_A ... SUBROUTINE SUB_Y USE MOD_A, DX => D, EX => E ! Array D has been renamed DX and array E ... ! has been renamed EX. Scalar variables B END SUBROUTINE SUB_Y ! and C are also available to this subrou- ... ! tine (using their module names). SUBROUTINE SUB_Z USE MOD_A, ONLY: B, C ! Only scalar variables B and C are ... ! available to this subroutine END SUBROUTINE SUB_Z ...
The following example shows a module containing common blocks:
MODULE COLORS COMMON /BLOCKA/ C, D(15) COMMON /BLOCKB/ E, F ... END MODULE COLORS ... FUNCTION HUE(A, B) USE COLORS ... END FUNCTION HUE
The USE statement makes all of the variables in the common blocks in module COLORS available to the function HUE.
MODULE CALCULATION TYPE ITEM REAL :: X, Y END TYPE ITEM INTERFACE OPERATOR (+) MODULE PROCEDURE ITEM_CALC END INTERFACE CONTAINS FUNCTION ITEM_CALC (A1, A2) TYPE(ITEM) A1, A2, ITEM_CALC ... END FUNCTION ITEM_CALC ... END MODULE CALCULATION PROGRAM TOTALS USE CALCULATION TYPE(ITEM) X, Y, Z ... X = Y + Z ... END
The USE statement allows program TOTALS access to both the type ITEM
and the extended intrinsic operator + to perform calculations.
8.4 Block Data Program Units
A block data program unit provides initial values for nonpointer variables in named common blocks. It takes the following form:
nameIs the name of the block data program unit.
specification-partIs one or more of the following statements:
COMMON INTRINSIC STATIC DATA PARAMETER TARGET Derived-type definition POINTER Type declaration 2 DIMENSION RECORD 1 USE 3 EQUIVALENCE Record structure declaration 1 IMPLICIT SAVE
A block data program unit need not be named, but there can only be one unnamed block data program unit in an executable program.
If a name follows the END statement, it must be the same as the name specified in the BLOCK DATA statement.
An interface block must not appear in a block data program unit and a block data program unit must not contain any executable statements.
If a DATA statement initializes any variable in a named common block, the block data program unit must have a complete set of specification statements establishing the common block. However, all of the variables in the block do not have to be initialized.
A block data program unit can establish and define initial values for more than one common block, but a given common block can appear in only one block data program unit in an executable program.
BLOCK DATA BLKDAT INTEGER S,X LOGICAL T,W DOUBLE PRECISION U DIMENSION R(3) COMMON /AREA1/R,S,U,T /AREA2/W,X,Y DATA R/1.0,2*2.0/, T/.FALSE./, U/0.214537D-7/, W/.TRUE./, Y/3.5/ END
Functions, subroutines, and statement functions are user-written subprograms that perform computing procedures. The computing procedure can be either a series of arithmetic operations or a series of Fortran statements. A single subprogram can perform a computing procedure in several places in a program, to avoid duplicating a series of operations or statements in each place.
|Subprogram||Defining Statements||Control Transfer Method|
|Function||FUNCTION or ENTRY||Function reference 1|
|Subroutine||SUBROUTINE or ENTRY||CALL statement 2|
|Statement function||Statement function definition||Function reference|
A function reference is used in an expression to invoke a function; it consists of the function name and its actual arguments. The function reference returns a value to the calling expression that is used to evaluate the expression.
The following topics are described in this section:
A subprogram can be an external, module, or internal subprogram. The END statement for an internal or module subprogram must be END SUBROUTINE [name] for a subroutine, or END FUNCTION [name] for a function. In an external subprogram, the SUBROUTINE and FUNCTION keywords are optional.
If a subprogram name appears after the END statement, it must be the same as the name specified in the SUBROUTINE or FUNCTION statement.
Function and subroutine subprograms can change the values of their arguments, and the calling program can use the changed values.
A SUBROUTINE or FUNCTION statement can be optionally preceded by an OPTIONS statement.
Dummy arguments (except for dummy pointers or dummy procedures) can be specified with an intent and can be made optional.
The following sections describe recursion, pure procedures, and user-defined elemental procedures.
A recursive procedure can reference itself directly or indirectly. Recursion is permitted if the keyword RECURSIVE is specified in a FUNCTION or SUBROUTINE statement, or if RECURSIVE is specified as a compiler option or in an OPTIONS statement.
If a function is directly recursive and array valued, the keywords RECURSIVE and RESULT must both be specified in the FUNCTION statement.
The procedure interface is explicit within the subprogram in the following cases:
The keyword RECURSIVE must be specified if any of the following applies (directly or indirectly):
A pure procedure has no side effects. It has no effect on the state of the program, except for the following:
The following intrinsic and library procedures are implicitly pure:
A statement function is pure only if all functions that it references are pure.
Except for procedure arguments and pointer arguments, the following intent must be specified for all dummy arguments in the specification part of the procedure:
A local variable declared in a pure procedure (including variables declared in any internal procedure) must not:
The following variables have restricted use in pure procedures (and any internal procedures):
They must not be used in any context that does either of the following:
A pure procedure must not contain the following:
A pure procedure can be used in contexts where other procedures are restricted; for example:
If a procedure is used in any of these contexts, its interface must be explicit and it must be declared pure in that interface.
The following shows a pure function:
PURE INTEGER FUNCTION MANDELBROT(X) COMPLEX, INTENT(IN) :: X COMPLEX :: XTMP INTEGER :: K ! Assume SHARED_DEFS includes the declaration ! INTEGER ITOL USE SHARED_DEFS K = 0 XTMP = -X DO WHILE (ABS(XTMP)<2.0 .AND. K<ITOL) XTMP = XTMP**2 - X K = K + 1 END DO ITER = K END FUNCTION
The following shows the preceding function used in an interface block:
INTERFACE PURE INTEGER FUNCTION MANDELBROT(X) COMPLEX, INTENT(IN) :: X END FUNCTION MANDELBROT END INTERFACE
The following shows a FORALL construct calling the MANDELBROT function to update all the elements of an array:
FORALL (I = 1:N, J = 1:M) A(I,J) = MANDELBROT(COMPLX((I-1)*1.0/(N-1), (J-1)*1.0/(M-1))) END FORALL
An elemental procedure is a user-defined procedure that is a restricted form of pure procedure. An elemental procedure can be passed an array, which is acted upon one element at a time. Elemental procedures are a feature of Fortran 95.
To specify an elemental procedure, use the prefix ELEMENTAL in a FUNCTION or SUBROUTINE statement.
An explicit interface must be visible to the caller of an ELEMENTAL procedure.
For functions, the result must be scalar; it cannot have the POINTER attribute.
Dummy arguments have the following restrictions:
If the actual arguments are all scalar, the result is scalar. If the actual arguments are array-valued, the values of the elements (if any) of the result are the same as if the function or subroutine had been applied separately, in any order, to corresponding elements of each array actual argument.
Elemental procedures are pure procedures and all rules that apply to pure procedures also apply to elemental procedures.
Consider the following:
MIN (A, 0, B) ! A and B are arrays of shape (S, T)
In this case, the elemental reference to the MIN intrinsic function is an array expression whose elements have the following values:
MIN (A(I,J), 0, B(I,J)), I = 1, 2, ..., S, J = 1, 2, ..., T
The FUNCTION statement is the initial statement of a function subprogram. It takes the following form:
prefixIs one of the following:
- type [keyword]
- keyword [type]
typeIs a data type specifier.
keywordIs one of the following:
Keyword Meaning RECURSIVE Permits direct recursion to occur. If a function is directly recursive and array valued, RESULT must also be specified (see Section 184.108.40.206). PURE Asserts that the procedure has no side effects (see Section 220.127.116.11). ELEMENTAL Restricted form of pure procedure that acts on one array element at a time (see Section 18.104.22.168).
nameIs the name of the function. If RESULT is specified, the function name must not appear in any specification statement in the scoping unit of the function subprogram.
The function name can be followed by the length of the data type. The length is specified by an asterisk (*) followed by any unsigned, nonzero integer that is a valid length for the function's type. For example, REAL FUNCTION LGFUNC*8 (Y, Z) specifies the function result as REAL(8) (or REAL*8).
This optional length specification is not permitted if the length has already been specified following the keyword CHARACTER.
d-arg-listIs a list of one or more dummy arguments.
r-nameIs the name of the function result. This name must not be the same as the function name.
The type and kind parameters (if any) of the function's result can be defined in the FUNCTION statement or in a type declaration statement within the function subprogram, but not both. If no type is specified, the type is determined by implicit typing rules in effect for the function subprogram.
Execution begins with the first executable construct or statement following the FUNCTION statement. Control returns to the calling program unit once the END statement (or a RETURN statement) is executed.
If you specify CHARACTER*(*), the function assumes the length declared for it in the program unit that invokes it. This type of character function can have different lengths when it is invoked by different program units; it is an obsolescent feature in Fortran 95.
If the length is specified as an integer constant, the value must agree with the length of the function specified in the program unit that invokes the function. If no length is specified, a length of 1 is assumed.
If the function is array-valued or a pointer, the declarations within the function must state these attributes for the function result name. The specification of the function result attributes, dummy argument attributes, and the information in the procedure heading collectively define the interface of the function.
A function subprogram cannot contain a SUBROUTINE statement, a BLOCK
DATA statement, a PROGRAM statement, or another FUNCTION statement.
ENTRY statements can be included to provide multiple entry points to
The following example uses the Newton-Raphson iteration method
( F(X) = cosh(X) + cos(X) - A = 0 ) to get the root of the function:
FUNCTION ROOT(A) X = 1.0 DO EX = EXP(X) EMINX = 1./EX ROOT = X - ((EX+EMINX)*.5+COS(X)-A)/((EX-EMINX)*.5-SIN(X)) IF (ABS((X-ROOT)/ROOT) .LT. 1E-6) RETURN X = ROOT END DO END
